The token eggs will be hidden at 12 different locations in and around Hollywood Blvd. Below we have provided you with 12 mysterious clues to help you on your quest.

The hotel was also the stage for the first Houdini séance, which has been a Hollywood tradition since 1927.

A: "The Star Trek Stars" The Hollywood Walk of Fame. Everyone knows we love Star Trek. We even gave a token to Leonard Nimoy. So why not pay tribute to the rest of the cast? We left eggs on or near the Walk of Fame Stars of Gene Roddenberry, William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, DeForest Kelly, Nichelle Nichols, George Takei and Patrick Stewart. These eggs were snatched as quickly as we could put them down by excited Star Trek fans and tourists. Sci-Fi fans really dig our Invader themed tokens.
